Aims, contents and method of the course

Excursion to Budapest (c. 28.8.-7.9.) (possibly with a stay in Brno).
In addition to major works of the Museum of Fine Arts, modern and contemporary art and architecture will be the focus of the excursion. Special emphasis will be put on the transformation of Budapest's monument landscape in the course of the Hungarian politics of remembrance of the last decades and on reactions of contemporary artists* to the political situation.
Objectives: Training in work analysis in presence of originals (architecture, sculpture, painting, "post-media" art...).
Methods: Description of works and joint discussion.

Assessment and permitted materials

All participants prepare (supposedly) two work-analysis (choice and commentary of one or more texts for the other participants; handouts; conduct of the discussions during the trip). Eventually two or three people will prepare one subject together.
